But when a crisis saw him taking over the family business at the age of 26 and subsequently shepherding a successful exit, he saw an opportunity to break out on his own and advise others of the pitfalls of fractured family dynamics and unclear succession planning.

When Christine Galloway joined the Dayton family office of Minneapolis in the early 1990s, the industry was in its infancy. Now, freshly retired, she reflects on her experience working for the family that created one of the US’s largest retail empires, and the strategies she has helped set in place to ensure the family office lasts for generations to come.

On the back of a recent partnership, the man who now heads up LGL Partners and Forbes Family Trust – two family offices founded by media moguls – talks to Campden about his plans for the future and the possibility of a merger.

The family office of Theophilus Danjuma – one of Africa’s wealthiest individuals – comes with plenty of compliance headaches. Campden speaks to its principal about investing – and why he wants more regulation. 

The Danjumas are not your ordinary wealthy family.

Then, so long as the smell test is okay, it’ll take another four to six months before the relationship finally gets off the ground.

That is exactly what Oliver and Philip Lyle – scions of the Tate & Lyle sugar-producing business – did back in the 1920s. At least, they provided the cash while a former Royal Horse Artillery captain- turned-boat designer built the cars.

The story of French investment group Wendel is as good as any case study of a family business converting to an investment group. CampdenFB speaks to Ernest-Antoine Seilliere, the group’s charismatic chairman.

Ernest-Antoine Seilliere doesn’t like rogue family shareholders. In fact, the chairman of Wendel, one of France’s pre-eminent investment groups, was so incensed about the issue that he wrote a book about it.
